Take DocsToGo as an example. I have the upgraded Premium version...normally it would be re-set to the 1.0 standard version.
Navigate to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\9000-v126.96.36.199_P188.8.131.52 (as an example...this will be whatever the root directory of your freshly installed OS is).
There you will see several ALX files which are the loader files. move or rename the DocumentsToGo file and your all set...DM will now regard this as a third party file and reload the programs from the backup created when you started loading the new OS.
JV - Thank you very much for taking the time out of your day to provide some advice and a workaround. It's really appreciated!
I'm getting ready to fly in a few hours so don't have time to play with it now but does this method work for the non-RIM-supplied applications (such as Google Maps?) I can see Docs to Go because RIM's version will overwrite it. Is it as easy as moving the ALX files from my desktop backup folder to the source directory and everything is picked up?
Some applications don't come with ALX files, for example (like GMM or a couple of the games I've purchased over the air) - do you have another workaround for them?
Thank you, again,
